MMI Webinar: Blockchain Finance Forum - Session 1.1 - Digital Assets and Asset Management

Tuesday, November 2, 2021 at 4:00 PM ET
Complimentary admission | Open to members and non-members

Blockchain and distributed ledger platforms are transforming major components of the financial services ecosystem including payments, recordkeeping, trading, and investing.

MMI is launching a Blockchain Finance Forum for financial professionals. We invite you to join us for an ongoing series of conversations with industry practitioners who are using blockchain to transform financial services – those innovating in the space and those looking to deploy innovative solutions at their firms – as well as those trying to learn more and get involved.

Join us on Tuesday, November 2 at 4:00 PM ET for an MMI Webinar presented by the new MMI Blockchain Finance Forum community in conjunction with Deloitte Consulting. The broadcast features findings from Deloitte’s recent survey on blockchain and digital assets, representing the views of 1,280 executives, including over 300 from financial services. You’ll hear directly from Richard Walker, one of the primary authors of the report, about the pace of adoption of digital assets, their potential impact, and the implications for investment managers.


Deloitte Consulting – Perspectives on Cryptocurrencies

Investment managers are already exploring, and in some cases holding, digital assets and cryptocurrencies. There is an expectation that asset managers will eventually be the largest holders of cryptocurrency (today they hold just 1%). Separately, there is a movement to digitize other – and perhaps all – financial instruments.

The bottom line is that investment managers may not have a choice as to whether they participate, and they need to understand digital assets and have a point of view on how and when they begin to engage.


Don’t miss this MMI Webinar for insights and actions to help you – and your firm – navigate the digital asset landscape.
